    Pros

    Pretty good shifts, typical day about 5hrs.
    Flexible scheduling.
    Managers were cool and down to earth.
    Great, lively Guests.

    Cons

    Zone seating instead of rotation. A lot of servers were getting triple sat 90% of the time.
    A bit Understaffed.
    Lazy coworkers (at my location)

    Advice to Management

    Hire people that actually like to work.
    Promote more from within.
